The Sip Collection

Durbanville Hills Collectors Reserve Lighthouse Merlot (6 x 750ml)

SKU: 16001108072082


The cheery red and white candy-striped lighthouse in Green Point with its foghorn, affectionately known as “Moaning Minnie”, is well-known for guiding ships along the misty Cape coast. These misty, cool climate conditions develop the Merlot’s unique character, displaying notes of mint and red cherry.

Tasting Notes

NOSE: Bouquet of baking spices, with aniseed, nutmeg, vanilla and fresh mint-chocolate. Prominent prune and delicious dark cherry aromas follow the array of sweet spices, gaining in strength as the wine breathes.

TASTE: A medium- to full-bodied wine with flavours of freshly picked, juicy dark cherries and ripe red-fleshed plums. The juicy fruit driven palate is complimented beautifully by a robust tannin structure, leaving a lingering, balanced and rich aftertaste.

Food Pairing

Lamb’s neck with prunes, lamb roast with rosemary or thyme, mushroom based dishes and Boerenkaas.
